This great guest house location has stunning views of the lagoon in Knysna. The Staff were very friendly and helpful, providing an amazing breakfast and helpful hints of where to visit during our stay. The room was a very good size with excellent facilities, brilliant bathroom with very large shower. The location is excellent for those wanting peace and relaxation, albeit that the town of Knysna is a short drive away. Having stayed on the Quay previously, we would strongly recommend Amanzi on Leisure Island as a better alternative. All in all a very relaxing stay and we would certainly return in the future.

Room Tip: Room 1 and 2 have amazing views over the lagoon, with their own private terrace.

Back home in the Netherlands and looking back our wonderfull trip we definitely found our visit to Knysna and to Amanzi Lodge as one of the highlights of our vacation. The combination of the beautiful location of Amanzi Lodge on the Lagoon, the peaceful ambience, the service and the continuous attention for the guests made our stay very pleasant.

Room Tip: The rooms situated at the groundfloor, overlooking the Lagoon, are very recommendable.

Everything about our stay here was perfect and exceeded all our expectations. We stayed for six nights but would have happily stayed for longer.The location was wonderful, the lodge was really comfortable with such a relaxed ambience that it felt like a home from home. Our room was beautifully decorated and designed to make the most of the stunning views, whether from the bed or the bath! There were also lots of lovely touches in the room which were thoughtful and appreciated such as a supply of books, magazines, tea lights & matches etc. Pretty much everything had been thought of to make the room a joy to spend time in. The lodge has a fantastic supply of books and guides to the local area and we were also given plenty of helpful tips & suggestions to help us plan our days. In fact the hardest thing was choosing between sightseeing and just spending time at the lodge where we found it so easy to completely relax. Most of all we could not have asked for more hospitable or helpful hosts, Helen, Sue and Margaret you were just fantastic. And not to forget the breakfasts, these were absolutely the best we had anywhere during our trip with lots of delicious healthy options set out buffet style as well as the usual cooked options which always arrived cooked to perfection and just as requested. We had an amazing time in South Africa and stayed at some spectacular places but honestly this was the one place we would return to and we would not hesitate to recommend it.

We stayed in the Amanzi Lodge in March and had the most wonderful time. The warm hospitality of Helen, Sue and Margaret was exceptional and made our visit all the more special. The Lodge is situated at the most idyllic location, overlooking the lagoon which you can swim in, kayak in, etc. Helen, Sue and Margaret provided us with the most wonderful walking recommendations - Robberg and then Nature's Valley - stopping off at Emily Moon for a delicious sushi lunch. The room was airy and spacious (with a his and hers bathroom - bliss!!) with the most amazing balcony overlooking the lagoon - which you could see from the bed. The breakfast was by far the best we had - served on the balcony overlooking the lagoon. This was definitely the best B&B we have stayed in and can't wait to visit again.

Room Tip: Room 3 was wonderful overlooing the lagoon
